Default Re: Operational Engine Stand

Any stationary engine stand needs to incorporate some means of cooling. These are air cooled engines, especially the Chinese 2 stroke engines which do not have cooling fans built in and rely on air passing over the cylinder and cylinder head for cooling.

Some 4 stroke engines are designed for stationary applications and have internal cooling.

You'll have to provide some moving air passing over the engine when it is running. Keep this in mind when designing an engine test stand.
